What Cabello cannot prevent is for the Chavista activists to back down.

In his television program “With the Giving Hammer”, Cabello admitted that the ruling Unified Socialist Party had flaws in attracting voters (1 in 10) when he pointed to the major defection of Chavista guerrillas, for which Maduro criticized him by suspending his program.

Indeed, an important group of former Chavez ministers and senior dissident officials, led by former Finance Minister Rodrigo Cabezas, have spoken out in favor of voting for the opposition candidate for unity, Edmundo Gonzalez.

María Corina insists on the formation and registration of “commanditos” to build a 600,000-strong citizen force that will defend the votes on July 28.

In this sense, Maria Corina emphasized that Venezuela needs profound change. “It's not just removing Maduro, which we're going to remove, it goes much further than that; “We will have a new president that we will elect on July 28, and he is Edmundo Gonzalez Urrutia.”
